HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's going to be hot and muggy for the next several days as moisture from former tropical cyclones move into our neighborhood.
Moisture from former Hurricane Blas moved through the state last night and this morning, but partial clearing is expected this afternoon. Moderate trades will return for Saturday, but by Sunday, a remnant low from what is now Tropical Storm Celia will move just north of the islands, making winds light and variable by Monday.
A cloud band extending southward from the low will draw more tropical moisture northward, and could bring more showers and the chance of locally heavy rain for Maui County and the Big Island Sunday night and Monday, and then Oahu and Kauai Tuesday.
The humid and uncomfortable weather will stay with us for the next several days with the possibility of another tropical system approaching from the east later next week.
A Small Craft Advisory is posted for the usually windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island. A south-southwest swell will boost surf to just below advisory levels today. Looking further ahead, an east swell from Celia will bring east shore surf to advisory levels Sunday, with the high waves holding for Monday before subsiding Tuesday. Another east shore swell could arrive late Monday from current hurricane Darby.
